Mexican Icon Alejandro Fernández Announces ‘Amor Y Patria Tour’ Celebrating Latino Culture
Mexican star Alejandro Fernández will be back on the road in the U.S. this year, announcing his 21-date “Amor y Patria Tour” that will celebrate his love of music, family and home country of Mexico.
“I’m excited to return to the U.S. to celebrate Latino culture through my music,” Fernández said in a statement. ”I’ve put together a totally new show. I can’t wait to see my fans and sing all our favorite songs together. Y que viva México!”
Fernandez will be joined on stage by his son Alex in most of the shows, continuing a family tradition of father-son performances. Throughout his career, Fernández — known as “El Potrillo” (which translates to “the colt”) — often joined his father, the late legendary singer Vicente Fernández, at live shows to perform some of Mexico’s most popular rancheras.
The tour is produced by Live Nation and will kick off at Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center on Sept. 8. Fernández makes a few stops in California before playing Sept. 15 and 16 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to celebrate Mexican Independence Day. The musical icon also has shows in Dallas, Chicago, Washington, DC, and New York before closing out his tour in Miami on Oct. 22.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, Feb. 17, at 10 a.m. local time and can be purchased on Ticketmaster. A portion of the tour’s proceeds will support Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino, an organization that strives to create a museum in the nation’s capital to educate and understand the richness and diversity of the American Latino experience within the U.S.
Fernández has had great success touring in the U.S. He played two shows in Las Vegas last September and grossed nearly $2.7 million and sold 20,953 tickets, according to box office reports submitted to Pollstar. He has earned more than $201 million from 261 headline shows reported to Pollstar dating back to 1999 and surpassed 3 million in ticket sales.
